  • The aquarium was nice. The outside exhibits were unique with the otters and sea lions. Then we were resting in the entrance area where a beautiful sea reef area was. And a diver came down with the mus...  read more »
  • I generally expect an aquarium to be an aquarium and a zoo to be a zoo...they're usually pretty consistent across the board. What made this a very fun experience for me was that A) They had 2 giant Oc...  read more »
  • Visiting my son from the East Coast, we decided to visit the aquarium since I had not seen it the last few visits. I love aquariums and am very familiar with the model used for the Atlanta, Myrtle Bea...  read more »
  • This is a nice aquarium, well laid out for walking a continuous path that leads to everything the aquarium has to offer, ending at of course, the gift shop. Nice shows for the kids to watch and well designed viewing and interactive animal displays. My son really enjoys aquariums and liked this place a lot.
  • The Seattle Aquarium is one of the few places you can actually touch the sea life. This is because the aquarium sits right over the water and uses fresh seawater through their touch tank exhibits. It's also a great place to get up close to the world's largest species of octopus. Twice a day they feed the octopus(es) which at times can be very entertaining and educational.
  • I loved it here and been here for couple times. Sea otters are my favorite and also 360 degree under dome that has all kind of BIG fish like sharks, Halibut , King Salmon and stingray. Also I love the open tank that you can touch starfish and some Sea Anemones. Octopus are big!! If you have kids gotta take them there!
  • We are now members here! It's perfect for rainy days and there's always something new to discover. The touch pool is our toddlers favorite feature second to the seals. The staff has always been wonderful with our little guy. Parking is a bit tricky with the viaduct construction but worth the effort.
  • Small but nice! Nothing in comparison to san diego or vancouver but still has its own charm. The divers' show was nice. Good for children. Not MANY varieties of animals!
